we put on an addition to our house, upstairs. what i didn't figure on was the smoke coming up from my husbands "smoking room" / breezeway. i closed off the heater vent in his room, but the smoke still comes up when we open the upstairs windows. as a last resort, i'm keeping the windows in the room above the smoke room closed, and am buying lots of tropical plants to put in the upstairs rooms.
has anybody else used plants for air purification? from what i've read on the internet, they can also help add humidity to the air, which is a big bonus (if true), as i suffer from dry skin all winter long. supposedly, they can even replace a humidifier.
anybody else have luck with this type of arrangement? how many tropical plants, and what kinds are best for you?
